A new beginning......

Hope really does spring eternal. My DH went for his annual check up this week and his blood sugar is getting higher so he is now determined to eat better and get his weight under control. This will be a HUGE help to me. No more salty snacks in the house. They are definitely my downfall.

I will continue to walk everyday at least 5 days a week. I will do some kind of exercise every day. I will weigh/measure all food including condiments. I will be accountable to myself and ...

I will continue to walk everyday at least 5 days a week. I will do some kind of exercise every day. I will weigh/measure all food including condiments. I will be accountable to myself and weigh in in front of another person to keep myself accountable.

My goal is to lose 5% of my body weight for this challenge and maybe a little more for good measure!

My Goals:
I want to be a healthy weight and not feel anxious when I have to get on the scale in the doctor's office.

My goal is to lose 5% of total body weight by the end of the Winter challenge.

My Program:
Winter Challenge Exercise Plan:

Walk 60 minutes in the morning 5 days a week.

Walk - 30 minutes in the afternoon 7 days a week.

Ride stationary bike 30 minutes 5 days a week.

Personal Information:
Hi -

My name is Donna. My DH of 48 years and I live in central Florida most of the year. We have a little cabin in the mountains where we like to go and escape the summer heat.

I love to read, play computer games, garden and walk. I spend most Saturday mornings at the local yard sales and am forever searching for that special treasure.

My DH and I like to travel - especially cruises. We like unpacking once and sleeping in the same bed every night. And someone else takes care of everything else. But for 2014 we plan to see the USA. We've done quite a bit but have places we want to re-visit and take the grand with us this time.

We are blessed with two grown children (one son and one daughter) and a sweet teen-age granddaughter. We love spending time together and try to take the grand everywhere we go. She still likes to be with us so we consider each day a gift.

Other Information:
I love to read, do all kinds of puzzles, spending time with our teenage DGD but most of all we like to travel. We find cruises the easiest. Unpack once and someone else takes care of everything for us!

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below
